Our bus drivers are safe
and reliable in taking the stu-
dents to and from school. We
wish to thank them for their
excellent job this year.
Mr. Lyle Keith drove the
Michigan bus for a little over
three years. Last year he drove
the bus which took the Bas-

their out-of-town games. His

This year, as in years past, the Senior class has gone through the strenuous, but
enlightening experience of publishing a Vistula. Our Staff was made up of the following:

Although not all of our class members had specific jobs, every one has worked hard
when called upon. Miss Davis' excellent supervision, our ideas were submitted, dis- -
cussed, revised, and Hnally accepted or rejected.
To increase interest in our selling campaign the boys challenged the girls to a
selling contest. Although the girls were out-numbered almost two to one, they made a
good stand and, in the end, treated the boys to a party.
To help us finance this year book we sponsored several money-making projects,
including running a canteen during the County Baseball Tourney and presenting a
Donkey Basketball Game in February.
We genuinely hope that you will get as much enjoyment from the 1949 Vistula
as we have had bringing it to you.

In the fall of 1945, thirty-two "green fresh-
men" entered Fremont High School. Among the
thirty-two were some who had never been here be-
fore. These were: Wauneta Rakestraw, Billy Bryan,
Esther Fritz, Elnora Post, Richard Brown, Adam
Steele, and Edward Adams. Later in the year Lil-
lian Scott joined us from Pittsford. During the year
we suffered our initiation and enjoyed quite a few
parties. Mrs. Margaret McLain was our sponsor and
our class oflicers were as follows: President, Bob
Hardingg Vice President, Bud Keyes, Secretary-
Treasurer, Fred Ireland, Student Council Members,
Francis Parsons and Virginia Foster.
In 1946 we entered school again as "Silly Soph-
0mores" and found we had acquired three more
members: Vivian Dergins, Raymond Fritz, and James
Shafferg but we had lost Eva Mae Schaeffer and Vir-
ginia Hantz. Later in the year we welcomed two
more members-Bob St. Johns and Bob Ryan, both
from Orland. Before the year was over, however, we
lost Estel Parsons, Bob St. Johns, Franklin Beebe,
and Fred Clay. This year Mr. Max Mitchell was our
sponsor and our officers were: President, Maynard
Stafford, Vice President, Bob Harding, Secretary-
Treasurer, Virginia Fosterg Student Council Members,
Bud Keyes and Janet Hadley. This year we had the
pleasure of initiating the green freshmen. I'm sure
the memory of it will linger in the minds of our
class and those of the under-classmen. We felt very
fortunate in having a member of our class as Fre-
mont's candidate for Queen in the Fisherman's Jubi-
lee. She was Janet Hadley.
When school started again we entered as "Jolly
Juniorsn. Two new members joined us but left in a
few days. They were Ardith Betts and Beverly Bond.
We had also lost Billy Bryan, Robert Ryan, lla Mae
Straw, Orville Davis, and Edward Adams. Mr. Robert
I-Ienney was our sponsor. Our otiicers were: Presi-
dent, Ira Clark, Vice President, Fred Irelandg Student
Council Members, Bud Keyes and Vivian Dergins.
This year we put on our first class play. It was
"Professor, How Could You", a three-act comedy.
We also enjoyed the Junior-Senior Banquet which
was held at the Valencia Gardens in Fort Wayne.
Now we are "Sophisticated Seniorsn. We gained
two new members: Donald Green and Edmund Gir-
rel. We were sorry to lose Bob Waggoner, who mov-
ed to Oklahoma, and Lillian Scott who moved to
Arizona. Mrs. Joyce Reed was chosen as our class
sponsor. Our class officers were: President, Francis
Parsonsg Vice President, Maynard Staffordg Secretary-
Treasurer, Fred Ireland, Student Council Members
were Barbara Foulk and Bud Keyes. This year our
Senior play was a three-act comedy called "The
Adorable Impn. We are very proud of the boys who
represented our class in varsity sports throughout the
years. The Seniors were honored by the Juniors of the
County at a reception held April 22, at Potawatomi
Inn in Pokagon State Park. The Senior class felt
deeply the loss of our principal, Paul Bailey. Mr.
Bailey was a friend to us all. He understood us and
helped us with all our problems, no matter how large
or small. His memory and his effect on our lives
will remain with us, always.

Always seen with "Someone",
His interest is centered,
Not far from his home.
Lefty is his nickname,
Barbara is his pride,
Baseball is his talent
That he cannot hide.
Girls are his big problem,
He c-an't make up his mind,
He's always in a triangle,
But an answer he's sure to find.
A star athlete we call "Spit",
TVith the girls he's quite a hit:
NVith Joan to guide him through,
You know there's not a chance for
A mustache on his upper lip,
A friendship in his heart,
XVe are going to miss him,
XX hen we are far apart,
A little on the bashful side,
Although that's nothing she must
A public nurse she's going to be,
At least that's what she told to me.
True to her classmates,
True to the end,
NVe've branded her
A loyal friend.
Ginny Foster, tall and slender,
Of our class a loyal member,
She's worked hard to graduate,
And soon may set her wedding date,
Good in classes
And sports, too-
Hats off, Bing,
Good luck to You.
Pretty, long hair,
Big blue eyes,
She's made a hit
YVith one of the guys.
This tall boy is a member
Of the F. F. A.
And soon his farming talent
He's sure to display.
Viva Jean, a well-known lass,
YVill be remembered by our class:
She's full of pep and full of fun,
And keeps her Buick on the run.
Short, dark, handsome,
As a student and athlete
He's up with the best.
Dnane C rail
A boy well-liked,
Yet a quiet lad,
Is this four year classmate,
YVe're glad we've had.
F, F, A, and -l-H too,
Keep up the good work ,
XVe're all for you.
He is a very bashful lad,
Always happy, never sad,
In this World he'll go far,
For he's hitched his wagon to a star.
He's an athlete through and
And to his classmates he's true blue,
His ambitions are mighty high,
And we'll miss him as years go by.
F ranris Parsons
School or track,
He's always there,
YVith a good come-back.
Tall and husky,
Six foot two,
To his friends.
He's always true.
Due to sudden illness.
Lillian left our class,
But shefll long be remembered
As a Winsome lass.
The pretty, sweet, domestic type,
Fond of cooking and sewing,
A Home Ec. major here in school
She sure knows where she's going'
Always known to us
A friendship here that
Can't be beat.
Lots of good looks,
With personality plus,
We're all very proud,
That he is one of us.
Reading is his hobby,
Farming his occupation,
VVhatever he does
He'l1 be a success I
For he's full of determination.
Pretty and talented,
Head of our class,
Going to study nursing,
YVe know she'll learn fast.
Someday a store
YVe hope he'l1 buy.
Known to love horses,
Especially "KeI1ogg's Pep"
Among his many antics
There are some We won't forget.
He's quite a. guy-
And from the floor
He's six feet high- Q
Or maybe more.
Liked by all.

We entered the Junior class this year still upholding the title which has been ours for
three years now-the smallest class in high school.
In our Freshman year we began our high school career with twenty-hve pupils, losing
two, however, along the way. Our class officers who guided us through the year of
green and white were: Richard Baker, Presidentg Barbara Foulk, vice president, Shirley
Smith, Secretary-Treasurer, and Shirley Harding and LaMar Vose representing us in
Student Council. Coach Davis was our sponsor. The main event of our freshman year
was our initiation.
Under the blue and gold our class leaders were: Shirley Smith, President, Shirley
Harding, Vice President, Phyllis Smart, Secretary-Treasurer. LaMar Vose remained in
Student Council and Nancy Moreland was the other representative. Mr. Davis again did
a grand job as our sponsor. In September we had 19 pupils but by the end of the year
we had decreased to 16.
When we counted noses this fall we discovered that there were 17 "Jolly juniors".
We had three new pupils this year. Jean Rude joined us from Edon, Ohio, Mary Lou
Paul from Detroit, Michigan, and Norma Pabst came from Bronson, Michigan.
Our officers were: Richard Baker, President, Shirley Smith, Vice President, Shirley
Harding, Secretary-Treasurer and LaMar Vose and Phyllis Smart in Student Council.
Nancy Moreland and Phyllis Smart are the canteen managers with Shirley Smith and
Donna Schaeffer as their assistants. Although we chose a different sponsor this year we
kept it in the same family by choosing Miss Davis, whom has been most capable and a
great hel1p to us all.
Shirley Smith, from our class, was elected as cheerleader for the second year. LaMar
Vose, Richard Baker, and Lawrence Garman were active in basketball and they all cer-
tainly did a fine job.
The two most important events of this year were our class play "A Little Honey"
which all the juniors enjoyed presenting, and the reception which we Juniors were very
happy to give for our upper classmen, the Seniors.
We shall be back next year as "Sophisticated Seniors" for our final year in high

Although we entered I-Iigh School on September Z, we werenlt oflicially welcomed
until October 16. You guessed it! Initiation!
We chose Mr. Nlitchell as our sponsor. Our otlicers were: President, Christine
Frahmg Vice President, Barbara Loucksg Secretary-Treasurer, Dorothy Smart.
We started with the largest class in High School, boasting of thirty-six. A notice-
able fraction of the male population participated in Baseball, Basketball, and Track.
Most of our girls took part in G.A.A., and Band, and Chorus.
The Student Council members were Joan Abbott and Jerrie Somers, who did a
very fine job. We kept Joan as our representative a second year and George Baird re-
When we came back this year as "Silly Sophomoresn we found a new member, a
former Buckeye, James Knapp, who came here from Montpelier. We lost Barbara Gault,
who moved to Waterloo. We also found, much to our sorrow, that we are now the second
largest class in High School as the "Green" Frosh took the lead in population.
This year our sponsor was Mr. Latier, and our oihcers were: President, Dorothy
Smart, Vice President, Barbara Loucks, and Secretary-Treasurer, Kenneth Leland. We
have proved that women are not the weaker sex by having a majority of female officers
They say that revenge is sweet and we proved that old adage by giving the
Frosh a rousing welcome into High School, via initiation. Although we drained the
town's supply of onions, lipstick, rouge and mascara, it was a lot of fun.
Kenneth Leland, Bill Peeler, Bill Palmerton, Bob Brown, and Fred Binkley played
second team basketball this year, while George Baird aided and abbetted the varsity
team. With a few exceptions these same boys participated in baseball and track. Two
of our soph girls, Marilyn Harding and Barbara Loucks, were chosen as cheer leaders
Many girls participated in Chorus, G.A.A., and Band. We have enjoyed the past
two years and are looking forward to the future as jolly Juniors.

On November Sth, thanks to the Sophomores, we were duly initiated. Afterwards
they gave us a very nice party.
We are proud to have ten of the boys from our class on the second team in basket-
ball, and several on the baseball squad. Other members of the class took part in chorus,
band, G.A.A. and the operetta.
In April We gave an assembly program for the student body.
We wish to express our gratitude to the faculty and upperclassmen for the kind-
ness and patience shown us during the school year.

The word Affalrlifs in this high school means
very much to everyone, here and in this community.
From the first day of school to the last, both boys
and girls are engaged in some form of sport.
The boys have baseball, basketball, and track in
that order. The girls have soft-ball, volleyball, and
The first track meet of the 1947-48 season was
a 3-way meet at Howe M. A., Howe, Indiana, with
Fremont, Howe and Hamilton competing. The Ca-
dets came out on top, Fremont 2nd, and Hamilton
The Eagles then went to Butler for a 3-way
meet with Butler, and Ashley. In this meet the Eagles
placed Znd. Butler had one of the strongest track
teams in Northern Indiana.
The third track meet was held at Howe M. A.,
between Shipshewana, Howe and Fremont. The
Eagles came through in 2nd place, again.
The State Corner Conference Championship was
decided at Garrett. Butler emerged the victor, for the
second straight year, with Waterloo, Fremont, Ash-
ley, Hamilton, Avilla and Wolcottville following in
The Indiana High School Athletic Association
Sectional Track Meet was held during the month of
May. Maynard fSpitJ Stafford, Fremont's half-miler
was edged out by Nye, of Elkhart, for the first
place ribbon, but he earned the right to run in the
State Tournament finals at Technical High School
Coach Davis and Maynard Stafford made the
trip to Indianapolis where Maynard made a credit-
able showing. Because of the large number of con-
testants, the half mile was run in two heats. Staf-
ford's time in both the Sectional and State meet was
2:06.S, a school record for this event. We hope to
see him do the same or better this year.
We are taught not only to play the game but
to respect the other fellow and to be good losers as
well as winners.
In our sports we have been taught to emphasize
sportsmanship and fair play. And in the future we
will try to carry these teachings into our lives, as we
strive to become better and more reliable citizens.
Those participating in track were as follows:
Francis Parsons, Bob Harding, Lefty Bressler, Dick
Brown, Maynard Stafford, Bud Keyes, Bob Hutchins,
John Eastes, Bill Palmerton, Harold Ferguson, Ken-
neth Leland, Doc Vose, Ira Clark, Lawrence Gar-
man, Fred Binkley, Edward Antrup, Bill Peeler, Jack

The Eagles had another successful season in baseball, earning second place in the
County Standings, and a right to play in the County Baseball Tourney.
The season started with Fremont winning their Hrst two games. The first opponent
to fall before them was Metz, the one-sided score being 20-0. The Eagles visited Salem
the following week and had to come from behind late in the game to win 4-3. They
dropped one to Scott Center by the score of 4-2. Scott's pitcher had the Fremont
boys confused as they weren't able to make many connections with the ball. The
Eagles came back to trounce Hamilton in a Corner Conference game, 10 to 4. They
then defeated Orland, the defending county champions, by the score of 9 to 5. Their
second defeat proved to be an upset, as Pleasant Lake defeated them 5-3. The Eagles
had to come from behind again in the Flint game to edge them 4-3 in their last game
of the season.
The Steuben County Baseball Tournament was held at Fremont on October
11-13-16. The weather made it very difficult to play and some of the games had to
be moved to a later date. However, when the weather did permit, we found Salem
losing the first game to Flint, and, in the second game, Hamilton being edged by
Fremont by a small margin. The finals found Fremont and Flint battling it out for
County honors. The game was close until near the end, when Flint put on a rally to
knock out Fremont 9 to 3.

The Fremont Reserves also boast a fine record this season, having turned in 14
wins and only 5 defeats.
Because of their line record and their general ability they were looking forward
to the County Reserve Tourney with anticipation. They were greatly disappointed, then,
when it had to be cancelled, due to a severe sleet storm.

eft to l'iQl1l7Fiill'lPill'1l l14llIL'kS, 1lIkll'llYl1 Hardin:
and Shirley Smith.
Next season's Varsity will be made up
almost entirely of Reserves, as all but one of
the first team will graduate this year. Our
Fledgling Eagles have some height as well
as individual ability and should prove to be
another winning Combination for Fremont.
Most of the Reserves are Sophomores, so next
year's varsity will probably boast many
Juniors. It also means the Eagles will have
or should have another tough team for the
next two years, at least.
Now that we have seen what they can
do as Reserves, we know what to expect
of the team when they wear the Varsity uni-
forms. "Good Luck, Future Eagles."
Shirley Smith, Marilyn Harding, and
Barbara Loucks were chosen by the student
body as our cheer leaders for the year. We
wish to congratulate the girls for their fine
work and colorful showing.

THE SCRAP-HAPPY EAGLES
The "Little', Eagles turned in another fine season of basketball. Their
lack of height was never a determining factor as to the outcome of a
ball game. The players had speed and all seemed to have a charm for
the basket, which accounted for their balanced scoring. They had plenty
of spring, which could be shown by their ability to get in on the
rebounds, and to out-jump many of their taller opponents.
For the third consecutive year the Eagles showed their basketball
superiority by winning the County Tourney and the Blind Tourney. This
is the first time Fremont has won the County Championship three years
in succession. The Eagles won the
County Title this season by the score
of 70-69, defeating Metz in the final
game for the third year.
The Eagles won the 1949 Blind
Tourney by walloping the Pleasant
Lake Spartans 69-35, in the Hnals,
making it their third successive year
for winning the Blind Tourney.
The "Little" Eagles or, as the
coach would say, "My nine little po-
niesf' earned the reputation of coming
from behind in the last minutes of play
to win many a hard-fought battle.

Look at the smiles. Coach and team look happy, and no wonder!
They view some of the permanent trophies that have been collected
during the past three years and will remain at Fremont High School.
The team has also had the Dope Bucket and the Liberty Bell.
We hope the Future Eagles will continue to win these mementos
in years to come and be as proud of them as we are.
GEORGE BAIRD QCOofciej Sophomore
Cookie came to Fremont from Farmer, Ohio. He proved to be a
good man in both baseball and basketball. With this year's experience
he ought to be plenty tough next year. We, the graduating Eagles.
Wish you lots of luck next year, "Cookie."
WORDEN KEYES, gimp senior
This makes his third year on
the team. Bud was one of our most
capable rebounders and scorers. He
was an important man on the base-
ball team. "Good Luck," Bud.
MAYNARD STAFFORD, qspffp
Spit was a valuable man in
both baseball and basketball for
three years. He was a good re-
bounder and our leading scorer.
"Keep it up," Spit.
FRANCIS PARSONS, cFf617HljfJ
Franny Was another three year
member. He was a good defensive
man and a caipable scorer. He was
also an important member of the
baseball team. "So long", Franny.
LQMAR BRESSLER qtfffyy senior
This is Lefty's first year on the
Hrst team. Lefty could be counted
on to hit from out on the floor. He
was a regular on the baseball team.
"Good Luck," Lefty.
GEORGE LEFTY IRA J. O.
IRA CLARK, fl. cg senior Above-SPIT
This was his first year on the team. Ira was one of our most valuable re- Be1OWiFRANNY
serves. His defensive play got him in a lot of games to stop a "hot" opponent.
"Keep fighting, I. C."
ROBERT HARDING fBobQ Senior
A one year member, he proved to be a capable reserve,especially Where there
was some extra height needed on the rebounds. He was an important member
on the baseball team. "Happy Marriage, Bob."
HAROLD FERGUSON, Uiergiej Senior
Fergie was another reserve who had some height that was frequently called
upon to help out. He was valuable in baseball, too. "Goodbye, Fergief'
RICHARD BROWN, OJ Senior
J. O. was another capable reserve, always ready to go into action when
called upon. He was a regular on our baseball squad. "Keep plugging, O."
Since this year's team was composed of eight Seniors and only one under-
classman, George Baird, the reserves will undoubtedly make up next year's Hrst
Most of the second team players got in some action on the first team
some time this year and do have some experience in first team ball. Their excel-
lent record in wins this year and the experience they were able to get on the
first team should give them a strong ball club next season.
They have individual ability as well as height. From what we have seen
of their play as second teamers, we get an idea of what to expect of them as
next year's "Eagle" squad.
We, the graduating Eagles, Wish you lots of luck next year and hope you
have as good a season as we have had, if not a better one. "You Can Do It."

THE LONG AND SHORT OF
NEXT YEAR'S PROSPECTS
THE SCRAP HAPPY EAGLES fC0l1filIIlL'!1 from page BSQ
There was a new team on our schedule this season, the Elm-
hurst Trojans of near Fort Wayne. They used a two team attack
which did not seem to bother Fremont in the least until late in
the game when the Trojans ousted the Eagles 48-42. The Eagles
look forward to meeting the Trojans again next season and hope
to even the score.
The Eagles record for the 1949 season was 16 wins to 7
defeats including all tournament games.
The Eagles wish to express their appreciation to their coach,
Maurice Davis, for his outstanding coaching, and willingness to
help any of the players with their individual problems. He has
coached at Fremont for the past three years and has made an
enviable record. Three boys, Maynard Stafford, Francis Parsons,
and Bud Keyes have been on the varsity team all that time. Dur-
ing these three seasons they have been trying to fill the trophy
cases by winning the Steuben County Basketball Tournament and
the Blind Tourney for the past three years in succession. They
twice won the Corner Conference Championship, tying with
Waterloo in 1948, for which both teams received a trophy, again
in 1949 being the only Corner Conference team with a 5-1
record. Their 1947 baseball team also won the Corner Conference
The Eagles have made a fine sectional showing as well, by
winning their way to the semi-finals in 1947, and in 1948 getting
to the finals. Thus, they have won 8 crowns and 6 trophies, a
most commendable record. During the past three years they have
a record of S3 wins to 18 losses.

their coach all the luck in the world. We expect another win-
ning team next season. We wish to leave the "Future Eagles"

and their slogan: 'A quitter
never wins, nor does a winner ever quit'."

The grades played three games
of baseball this fall, two with An-
gola and one with Orland. They
lost the two to Angola by scores of
2 to 1 and 4 to 2 and lost to Or-
land 6 to 3. Several of the grade
baseball team will be back next year
and they hope to do better.
The Cheer Leaders, Janis Baird
and Nancy Keith, did a swell job
this year and We hope they gained
some experience which will help
them in high school in future years.
Thanks for your Hne spirit, girls.
.Janis Baird, Nancy Keith.
Although the Palefaces played very hard and did
manage to improve considerably during the year, as far as
wins and losses were concerned, they were unsuccessful.
This was the first year for many of the eighth grade
boys, but if they keep on improving they should give some
of this year's Freshman boys a lot of competition on the
second team next year. The caliber of grade ball in the
county was improved this year and there were many line
teams represented. The County Grade tourney at Metz was
very well attended, and all who witnessed it witnessed
some exciting and well played games. The tourney was
won by Scott Center.

whenever anything important arises.
The representatives for the high school classes were: Freshmen, Phyllis Beams and
Jack Sprague, Sophomores, Joan Abbott and George Baird, Juniors, Phyllis Smart and
Lamar Voseg Seniors, Barbara Foulk and Bud Keyes.
The Student Council held its first meeting on October 6, 1948. The election of
officers was as follows:
Vice President-Phyllis Smart
Secretary-Joan Abbott and LaMar Vose

The first duty of the Council was to plan the Hallowe'en Carnival. With the help
of Mr. Latier, chairman of the carnival, it turned out most successfully.

They also counted the votes and announced the winners. The responsibility of ar-
ranging assembly programs was delegated to the program committee which was ap-
pointed by the Student Council.
The program committee and the Council planned the Christmas program together.
The Council took care of the decorating and gift exchange.

The band, organized and trained by Mrs. Ramsay, continued to show improve-
ment and strength during the year. New members have increased its several sections
so that it is a quite well-balanced high school band.
At the beginning of the school year the new members were Jean Rude and Gloria
Conway. Other new members who entered during the year were Rose Mary Mitchell,
Alice Hadley, JoAnne Taylor in the clarinet section, and Christine Frahm, Mary Waters,
June Keyes, Ruth Schieber, and Ronnie Follet in the percussion section, and Gayle
Doster in the baritone section.
The band made its first public appearance at the Metz basketball game on Novem-
ber third in the Fremont gym, and played at all home games throughout the season. It
was a main feature at the annual Christmas program on December 20th, and also
played for Commencement on May 18th.
Awards were given to those who had completed one or more years in the band.
Those receiving senior awards were Virginia Foster, Iris Ann Schaeffer and Paul Hollev.

Several times a Week the pupils in the study hall may hear the familiar sound of
the chorus practicing. The boys meet on Wednesday and the girls on Monday.
This is the second consecutive year the chorus has been under the direction of Mrs.
This year the chorus has increased in number over last year until it consists of
fifty-six members, six boys and fifty girls.
Stress has been laid on part singing, which has resulted in good harmony and a
better blending of voices.
The group has made several public appearances this year. Among them were the
operetta at the Hallowe'en Carnival, the annual Christmas Program, Baccalaureate Serv-
ices, and several assembly programs. One of the main events of the Hallowe'en Carnival
was the chorus operetta entitled "Dawn Boy". Several of the members had solo parts
While the rest of the members sang as a group. The operetta was unusual, fanciful, very
well done, and was greatly appreciated by the audience. At the Thanksgiving Chapel
the chorus sang two numbers, "Thanksgiving Hymny' and "The Prayer of Thanksgiv-
ing." The chorus set a good background for the portrayal of "Why the Chimes Rang"
at the Christmas program. "Nazareth" was the main number sung by the chorus at this
program. The numbers sung at Baccalaureate Services were: "This Is My Country" and
"The Angels Sing."
The members of the chorus as well as those who heard them thoroughly enjoyed
the results of the time and effort spent for this activity.

The Ready, Willing and Able Club completed
another successful year's work, under the direction
of Miss Davis.
The motto of the Ready, Willing and Able Club
is: "To Make the Best Better." The motto is applied
in our daily work as well as in 4-H work.
At the second meeting of the club all the girls
who were in 4-H for the first time were formally
initiated, and received emblems after the ceremony.
The girls in the club ,participated in all county
activities. They took part in the dress revue, the
judging contests, the county demonstration contests,
and the county meetings.
The highlight of the season's work was the
county exhibit. Phyllis Smith received Reserve Grand '
Champion on her canning. Many of the other girls
brought blue ribbons home. We are all looking for-
ward to another year's work.

We were very fortunate to have Mrs. Joyce Reed sponsor the Tatler again this
year, as she did such a good job last year.
The Tatler reports the doings of the students during the month. It has sports,
grit, jokes, class news and programs. We are happy to say the Tatler paid for itself
We, as past Tatler staffs, try to publish a better paper than has been published
in previous years. We have had a lot of fun putting out the Tatler this year. Best of
luck, Future Tatler Staffs.

In 1948 the junior Class presented their play, a three act comedy, 'lProfessor, How Could You!" on April
21 in the high school gymnasium. The play was directed by Mr. Henney, who, we think, did a Hne job.
The play was a story of a Professor, who could become dean of his college if he could get a wife. His
friend John and family rally around to help. John offered his secretary, a curly-headed little minx who couldn't
spell . . . an ideal wife! Grandma's candidate was Tootsie Bean, a bit plump, but a good cook. Vicky, one of
the Professors students at school, who is longing for revenge, proposes a friend, Valerie, a Southern charmer who
made a fool out of every man she met. Grandpa won't tell the name of his candidate! Convulsing scenes fol-
lowed. All three girls were invited for supper and Grandpa makes each one think the Professor proposed an
elopement, and they all appear ready for the dash to matrimony! There were plenty of laughs when the irate
girls faced each other-especially when, to save the situation, John dressed as a woman came in and said he was
the Professors, long lost wife! The three girls consoled themselves elsewhere and Grandpa's candidate won as the
Professor found a wife in the little spitfire Vicky! The cast follows:
Adoring Grandma, Barbara Foulkg Mischievious Grandpa, Francis Parsons, The very proper butler, Bud
Keyes, Plump Tootsie, Vivian Dergins, The pugilist brother, Richard Brown, john, Robert I-Iardingg Cute
Priscilla, Virginia Foster, The charming Valerie, Viva Worthingtong Saucy Vicky, Janet Hadley, The woman-
hating Professor, Harold Ferguson.
The Senior Class play "The Adorable Imp" was presented Wednesday, December 15, 1948 under the di-
rection of Mrs. Joyce Reed. The play proved to be a roaring success and the class enjoyed presenting it.
The plot of the play revolved around seventeen-year-old Betty Lou Gordon, who must play the part of
an eleven-year-old imp because her mother, Pamela Gordon, has told a wealthy admirer she is only twenty-
nine! So that she might get the new admirer to propose to her, Pamela invites him, his grandfather, his grand-
father's ward, and his cousin, to spend the week-end. To make matters worse, she also tells the grandfather
that her mother is only forty-six! Those troubles plus the fact that the maid has a habit of hearing all, seeing
all, and telling all, are only a few of the worries of the Gordon family. From the time the Pickrellls arrive
until the climax, the story is one hilarious time for all. How the admirers of Grandma and Pamela pose as
the new cook and butler and play all kinds of tricks on the guests, and how the Imp finally gets her man
formed the super-hilarious climax of this riotous farce.
The cast was as follows: Betty Lou Gordon, Barbara Foulkg Pamela Gordon, Janet Hadley, Abbie Simp-
kins, Virginia Fosterg Malvina Barclay, Iris Ann Schaefferg Hortense Hostetter, Esther May Fritzg Brian Barclay,
LaMar Bresslerg Ross Waldron, Francis Parsons, Dilworth Pickrell, Harold Ferguson, Winston Pickrell, Richard

CLASS PROPHECY-Inasmuch as we are direct associates of Chic Young, that
celebrated writer of fiction, and of Al Clapp, that famous humorist, we have been chosen
to expound upon the advantages and potentialities in the educational realm. Let us focus
upon the class of 1949 of Fremont High School and their accomplishments.
We are highly elated at the picture before us. George Crow, who, just ten short
years ago, was a meek, humble member of the aforementioned class, has since planted
more corn per square inch than the entire output of Mr. Carter's Liver Pill Factory.
There are Barbara and Francis Parsons, the most sought after evangelistic team
in America - they are now holding a mass revival in Ray, Indiana.
No doubt Maynard John Stafford's skill on the basketball floor has enabled him to
gain fame and fortune as the only violinist in the world who can render a complete
concert while wearing boxing gloves. James Shaffer, who, I would like to add, is no less
famous, is his accompanist.
Iris Schaeffer has continued with her high ambition to become a nurse and is now
Supervisor at a famous New York hospital.
Bud Keyes is genuine proof that education pays, for he is now assistant to Arthur
Murray in Fort Wayne. '
A news item in the society column of the Fremont Eagle tells of the recent visit
of Admiral Ira Clark, U. S. N.
Wauneta Rakestraw - that famous Powers model, has just won additional fame
on a television program in Hollywood.
Mr. Eddie Girrell took over the Stork Club several years ago and it has become
even more famous under his supervision. After your sumptuous meal is over, donit fail
to stay for the floor show, and the magnificent performance by those famous "Sunkist
Orange Blossoms" of California - Richard Brown and Donald Green. These boys have
won high honors of the year for their graceful ballet dancing.
And now we call attention to Adam Steele and Fred Ireland. In a pie-eating con-
test in China, Adam emerged the victor with Fred trailing by two bites, and Humphrey
Pennyworth a close third.
Harold Ferguson, that handsome gentleman, though born north of the Mason-
Dixon line, several years ago succumbed to the charms of a southern bell, and now lives
with his family at Rabbit Hash, Ky. They have two sets of charming twins.
Raymond Fritz, that power-house of learning has occupied a seat in the Senate,
lo! these many years. His attractive and efficient secretary is none other than Janet
Hadley, the No. 1 student of the class of '49.
That handsome and debonair bachelor, LaMar Bressler, has amassed a sizeable
fortune in the sewage disposal business, proving again that education pays and pays.
Clayton Fansler, that benighted Thespian, has achieved great fame and fortune
doing what he loved most during his senior year in High School. For many years he has
played the lead in "Macbeth" on the legitimate stage in New York.
Last June we had one of our 1949-ers from Fremont in the headlines. The reason
for all this publicity was the heavyweight title bout between Paul Holley, better known
as the Q'Smiling Killer" and Jersey Joe Walcott. The new champion, Mr. Holley, is now
visiting in Fremont. Hi-ya Champ!
In reverse of this great achievement, and in the field of more refined entertain-
ment, we find our talented Duane Crall making his debut singing the title role in the
Virginia Foster Michael has recently been crowned the "Farmer's Wife of the Year."
Regardless of the heavy household duties she must perform due to her large family of
six fine, red-haired boys, she is very active in club work.
Elnora Post has achieved great success in athletics. For the past six years she has
coached the Fort Wayne Zollner Pistons, and they have an undefeated record.
Robert William Harding, who is perhaps Indiana's best-loved and most widely-
known truant officer, has jurisdiction over five counties. This ambition was no doubt
realized through his own high standard of attendance during his high school years.
And last we come to Vivian Dergins, who holds the unbeatable record as winner
of the International Walkathon. It is estimated that she has walked 29,768,459,344.6
miles in the last ten years. However, we feel that her success is due largely to the excel-
lent help received from that devoted and faithful trainer, Esther Fritz.
And so, kind friends, we come to the close of our examination of the class of '49.

The time has come for us to choose our separate trails in search of the golden
intangibles of life. We have come a long way together, yet our journey has barely
begun. Having been led thus far by our parents, teachers, classmates, activities and
clubs, we are now on our own. Our paths will no longer follow the well-marked trails
that we have been privileged to follow while here at Fremont High School. We are
now given the duty of choosing our own paths which we may blaze as new trails for
those who will come after us in search of their gold.
We realize that not all of us will reach the gold we seek. For some, the price of
constantly striving to better ourselves and our surroundings, may be too high. Some
will start off in a blaze of glory, only to drop out of the race when the path becomes
didicult and obstacles arise. However, others of us will persevere to pan the world for
a pure gold, weed out hate and allow love and friendship to flourish, blaze trails
through cold wars and try to obtain Peace. Constantly, we will be striving for the bet-
terment of our school, our community, our homes, our churches, and our nation. We
hope we have learned something of the trails worth following to a satisfactory destina-
tion, and to distinguish them from those which lead only to an impasse. This has been
a part of our goal while at Fremont High, and we hope that we have fully appreciated
the opportunity to profit by the thoughts and experiences of others, before we begin
our "Lone Journey" toward our ideals and 'KSuccess."
With the hope that this short trip through our school has given you a better under-
standing of it and its meaning, we bid you a fond farewell and sincerely hope that, in
years to come, this 1949 Vistula will hold close to you these memories of Fremont High
School that have been the biggest stepping-stone in our advance towards SUCCESS, and
memories that are so dear to us. '

In 1849, one century ago, our great nation was
still in the making. During that year gold was dis-
covered in California and many, many people rushed
to the West, with the hope of reaching the place
Where the gold -had been found and obtaining a share
of the treasure. Some of them succeeded - they
reached the gold. Others dropped off along the route
and staked their claims at diiferent places that prom-
ised a life for them. There in the wilderness they
started life all over, making the best of what they
had and receiving a reward, not the nuggets of me-
tallic gold they had started to seek, but the gold that
we seek, such as Contentment, Wforld Peace, Enlight-
enment, World Brotherhood, Faith, Loyalty, Health,
Determination, and Success.
In 1949, the present time, we, the Seniors, must
rush on through life to reach the goal that we have
set for ourselves. As the 1849'ers did, so will some of
us drop off before our highest goal is reached and try
to make a success of our lives no matter how close we
are to the place where we started. We will be expected
to pan the World to secure a pure goal as our fore-
fathers panned the dirt for pure gold. We shall have
the duty of cutting our way through forests of cold
wars to obtain World Peace, be given the task of
fighting germs to gain Health, and be expected to dig
deep into unknown places for Knowledge, Wisdom,
and Understanding, we will have to weed out all
hate so that Love and Friendship may flourish, we
shall be taught to expect the unexpected so we can
have Happiness at all times. When we have done this
we will be well on our way to Success, but we will
not have the highest success until every nation of the
world has Freedom. As we've already stated, some of
us will drop off somewhere along the line, but others
of us will push on to achieve these goals for ourselves
and all mankind.
Now to our understanding teachers, parents,
loyal classmates, and Fremont High School, we, the
Seniors, bid a fond farewell and take one step farther
toward that goal for which we have thus far strived.

He has achieved success who has hv

This year our school and community suffered the loss of a dear friend and outstand-
ing leader, Mr. Paul Bailey, principal of Fremont High School for the past six years.
Mr. Bailey, born and raised in Fremont, was always deeply interested in the stu-
dents here at school, and also in his many friends throughout this community. He help-
ed all of us to become better individuals and better citizens through his influence and
His main interest was in this school and he constantly worked for the betterment
of it. He was interested in the scholastic and athletic achievements of his students
and willingly gave the help they needed to carry them through.
Another of his main interests was in the sports field, in which he took an active
part. He was always seen at the games urging the boys on to victory, and we are sure
that no man was ever prouder of a group of boys than he was, whether they Won
After teaching at Fremont a few years, he accepted a job as coach at LaGrange,
Illinois, and moved there for a short time. Upon his return to Fremont, he became
principal of this school and held that position until his death.
Mr. Bailey's theory of achievement, which was "Not to advance is to recede"-
has become such a part of us that we use it in our conduct, our school activities, our
sports, and in our everyday living. Our interpretation of this theory is: We must
improve. We must be better and do better than we did last year, last week, or yes-
terday. We cannot stand stillg we must go forward or backward. If we don't improve
we get worse. It is impossible to remain the same.
We shall long remember Mr. Bailey for the work he has done for his school and
community. Therefore, it is with deepest regret and sincere devotion that we, the Seniors
of 1949, dedicate this year's Vistula to his memory which will always be an essential
part of Fremont High School.
